Done | A Gift of Speech

So I will admit there are certain things that really  “drive me up the wall”.

One of them is when a student/client hollers DONE when they complete an activity.  I have taught, modeled, and lectured on NOT hollering DONE.

Yes, I will admit that today I might have lectured a bit about this subject.  Even though, I know that isn’t the answer.  So as I sat frustrated and about to pull my hair out, I realized that this wasn’t my student’s fault, but my own.  Have a taught them what is

Even though, I know that lecturing isn’t the answer!

So as I sat frustrated and about to pull my hair out, I realized that this wasn’t my student’s fault, but my own.  Have a taught them what is EXPECTED of them when they are done?  Ok, so I know I have taught this, but obviously not in a manner that stuck.

So I am creating a strategy for the end of the year and to start the year.   Because I am D.O.N.E hearing DONE!

  1.  Expected vs Unexpected Behavior classroom rules
  2. Social Story “What to do when I am DONE?”
  3. Pre-teaching (pre-teaching and not preaching) and reminders of what a student can do when they complete an activity.

So if you have any thoughts or ideas about how to support this issue, please let me know!
